About Neusa
With a diversified portfolio that easily reflects my passion for journalism, I have had the pleasure of working with global media outlets in radio, television, physical newspapers, and digital news platforms. My portfolio includes journalistic work for Euronews, CNN Portugal, DW, Africanews, African Markets, and the Journal of the Scientific Community of Portuguese-Speaking African Countries. This work has been widely broadcasted on TV channels and in press publications across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

One of the highlights of my career was the report titled "Why Africa's Diamond Revenue Isn't Prosperous for its People?" published on February 20, 2023. Originally in English for a German audience, it garnered attention from over twenty international media outlets and was translated into languages such as Indonesian, Greek, Arabic, Portuguese, and French, among others.

Additionally, I had the honor of conducting three exclusive presidential interviews with the leaders of Botswana, Cape Verde, and Mozambique, as well as an exclusive interview with the Secretary-General of the African Continental Free Trade Area. These moments are evidence of my ability to make meaningful connections and conduct interviews that resonate with impact and depth.

I am proud to say that I am a qualified professional with a postgraduate qualification in International Combating of Money Laundering, Terrorism Financing, and Organized Crime, and a degree in Sciences from UNIA - Independent University of Angola.

Diamonds of War: Africa's Troubled Gems

27 Dec 2023  |  Times of Oman
The article discusses the lack of socioeconomic benefits from diamond mining in Africa, with Botswana as an exception. The African Diamond Council's President, M'Zee Fula Ngenge, describes the exploitation and abuse in the industry, particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The article explores the two markets for diamonds: formal and clandestine, with the latter being dominated by foreign intermediaries. It also touches on the role of developed countries in turning a blind eye to the smuggling of diamonds and the manipulation of the industry. The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme is criticized for not effectively reducing the impact of resource looting. Additionally, the article links the Russian corporation Alrosa's diamond trade in Africa to the financing of the war in Ukraine, suggesting a conflict of interest with Belgium's involvement in both the diamond trade and sending soldiers to Ukraine.

Why diamonds and gold aren't making Africa richer

05 Apr 2023  |  dw.com
The article discusses the exploitation and abuse in the diamond industry in Africa, where local communities are not benefiting from the mineral wealth. The African Diamond Council, led by M'Zee Fula Ngenge, highlights the issues of conflict, greed, and lack of public sector accountability in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other mineral-rich African countries. The piece explores the clandestine diamond market, dominated by foreign intermediaries, and the role of the developed world in turning a blind eye to the smuggling and exploitation. It also touches on the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, criticized for being ineffective and serving the interests of diamond-buying countries. The article suggests that Russia's Alrosa corporation is involved in the African diamond trade, with revenues potentially financing the war in Ukraine. The need for combating poverty and ensuring regular means of diamond extraction is emphasized as a solution to the problem.

President Nyusi speaks on Mozambique's new role on UN Security Council

13 Jun 2022  |  Africanews
Mozambique's President Filipe Nyusi, in an exclusive interview with Euronews, discussed the country's recent election as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council. Nyusi emphasized the responsibility and opportunity this position holds for Mozambique to represent African issues, which constitute 60% of the Security Council's agenda. He acknowledged the challenges due to the weak representation of African countries but stressed the need to bring African voices to the forefront. Nyusi also mentioned the push for UN reforms, particularly in the Security Council, and the possibility of advocating for more African seats. As a representative of Africa, Mozambique will focus on combating terrorism, preventing weapon proliferation, managing risks, protecting the environment, and promoting gender balance.
